1) Yes, at third level or later (he doesn't have the requisite base attack bonus at first level)

2) yes, because of what you said.

I think wayangs, Kitsunes and Nagaji all become available when the season 6 guide comes out, just before Gencon. Also for your teifling, if you can get into a game before the guide comes and get 1 xp you can keep it even after the guide makes the race unavailable.
So I just have to create a tiefling character and play a game with it and I can keep it?

eyup.

. Skinwalker (skinwalker boons exist, right?)

No boons left.

2. Oread

Oldish boon. If you can get any race boon you shouldbe able to trade for one on the boon trading thread.

3. Tiefling

Stock up now! supplies are limited. Just play or DM a game with a tiefling as a tiefling and you're good to go do not play a pre gen

4. Wayang (depending on how long until they become available)

5...4......3.....2....

Would you please point to one thing I've cited that is courtesy of hamas? One thing that is factually incorrect

That website and video were horrible on their own merits. The malarky was obvious just from watching the video and what he "interpreted" from it. No other propaganda was necessary. It was making claims that were not supported by what was shown. I pointed that out, you make ad homs without answering it.

Hey, if you don't want to keep an open mind about stuff, I can't force the issue.(calling people close minded)

You have an angry, rhetorical , passive aggressive rant that meets resistance with ad homs, NOT an argument.

Quote:
What liberal bias would that be?

That Hamas cannot solve the situation.

That the situation is almost entirely Israels fault.

The Israel's retribution for the rocket attacks is a massive over reaction

That Israel is the one killing the majority of the civilians (around 800 at last count, compared to Hamas's 2) Israel not shooting back would eliminate over 99% of the innocent deaths.

Kinda hard to build shelters when Hamas keeps diverting the concrete to build tunnels into Israel.

You can't substantiate your claims.

You need to blame everyone for the problem with the argument your sources are making.

When someone calls you on the dissonance between the claims and the evidence, you can't back up the connection, you hop to something completely different and unrelated.

Its not people's bias leading to the conclusions you don't like here. Either you're making really, really horrible arguments for your position or reality's well known liberal bias is showing again.

So you're trying to say that the video shows that they were hamas rockets, or bombs, NOT israeli shells ? And he thinks he can tell that from the video. The guy couldn't even figure out where the market was.

The guy sounds like a 9 11 "truther"

What are you trying to say? You are making random conspiracy statements and expecting me to refute the crazy without knowing which thought process it is.

Articulate your specific claim. Are you trying to say "the rockets are hitting people of this age group, therefore they're mostly hitting terroritsts? "

It looks just like the population of the rest of gaza If there are slightly more males thats no surprise: they're more likely to be demonstrating or staying in high risk areas. If the shelters only have room for so many people, the women and children go and the men stay at home.

Um . . . you do know that precision bombing means multiple bombs don't need to be used, right?

I have NO idea what you're trying to say here. Are you trying to say that there were not multiple bombs?

Multiple bombs were used. There was the big plume of smoke the guy was filming, there was the one that went off while he was filming, and I'm pretty sure there was another one nearby that the crowd was leading the ambulance to.

"the link" is less than informative. He has enough links to different things to tie the girlscouts to global warming.

Might be malarkey. Or it might be true. I noticed no one actually pointed out where the guy was wrong.

An epic level ranger could not track this guys thought process, or how anything in the video relates to anything he's saying.

Listen to the narrator at :30 in the video. You can see with your own eyes that this isn’t a crowded or busy market, nor were there 160 wounded.

No. You can't. You can't see the market from this video. You can see ambulances pulling up with people telling the emt's "this way this way" but not what they're being led to, which I think is behind the graffiti'd wall. You can also see a big plume of smoke off in the distance, which is why this guy broke out the camera in the first place. For all I (or this guy) know THATS the market bombing.

Yes, the video shows a bomb going off in an empty parking lot, but what, pray tell, were those people flagging the ambulance down for ?

This video shows an attack on a relatively open space does not mean that all of the other bombs hit a relatively open space.

Yes. That is exactly what you're doing.

So I should only link sites that are BigNorseWolf approved?

Stop evading the argument by putting words people didn't say in their mouth.

If you link something that is malarkey, accept the possibility that people rejecting that malarkey is because its malarkey, not because they are closed minded.

If that's the only type of support you can find for your position, reconsider your position rather than crying that the audience is unfair.

Let me see if i have this strait?

Half elves can take human,elf, or half elf favored class bonuses because they count as both and because of this post

Half orcs can take half orc and human bonuses (but not orc because everything orc is banned)

This post means that Aasimar with scion of humanity, which normally could take alternate favored class bonuses can't, despite most Alaternate class bonuses being in the advanced players guide

Your options are terrible, and the advantages only last a level, if that. If you're going to divide your list down into hundreds of pieces, how many more pieces ARE they the best option for? Hundreds of them compared to your paltry list.

Why is this a headache given that being an aasimar or tiefling is a relatively marginal benefit and an actively poor choice for a number of different character types.

Please tell me what character type they're a poor choice for, given the blood of angels/fiends books?

Not really. They can look in their histories and see the game along with the event number.

Then the healer is out of spells and can't do in combat healing at all. ANd likely won't have out of combat healing because healing spells do NOT meet the amount of damage you take these days.

They could have avoided all this headache if they had just kept those race options open. I hate that PFS is requiring a boon to play something that was previously legal to use. They need to open up more options for players, not take options away.

Better to rip the bandaid off and have it hurt badly for just a little while than to continue the dull ache for years.

Zealous.

More seriously, can we keep the hard to convince people of need to change to the thing that absolutely NEEDS to change? In this case the basic humanity of the Palestinians. Tying an unpopular idea to another one just makes it harder for either to happen.

According to the rules as they are written in the Advanced Race Guide, Scion of Humanity makes the Aasimar "a humanoid (human) for any effect related to race". Favoured class options are effects related to race.

Which I think is trumped by the PFS specific rule that for the advanced race guide you can only shop within your species. Linky

Applying that to half elves would give me a headache though.

Its regular gaming ettiquite. You'll be fine.

What to expect when you're expecting a pfs table:
What to expect, lets say the game starts at 7

Game starts at 7

6:55 people start to trickle in

Folks eat, gossip, get settled in.

7:15 Geek soduku! People finalize how many people they have for which table. The veterans will then decide who's playing what character, trying to balance out levels, tiers, and party composition. The DM desperately tries to sneak in one more reading of he scenario

7:30: people get going. There's a mission briefing that one person will be paying attention to while most players find dice and minis check character sheets, phones,and chronicle sheets to make last minute purchases. You will get a flurry of 5 or six mispronounced names without much clear idea whether drendle drang is a person you're talking to, a place you want to go, or a particularly nasty curse you want to avoid.

You'll have a chance to ask questions, gather information and make knowledge checks to get some idea of what you're in for.

There will be ~ 4 encounters, usually some mooks for one fight, a trap or three, some sort of a skill or social challange, some sort of strong monster thats usually more likely to kill you than the boss, and then a solo or near solo boss fight. These will inevitably involve some "i'm over here he's over there what are you doing how are you searching how does that rule work" while trying to keep the game moving.

The encounters will test adventuring basics. Can you attack at both melee and ranged. Can you deal with swarms and other unusual creature types. Can you deal with damage reduction and incoporeal critters.

10:30 the boss fight starts! Hurrry!

11:05 The dm hurridly signs chronicle sheets and hands them out with a "go ahead fill them out"

Grab stuff get out the door hang out in the parking lot for a bit to come back to reality then head home.

What you should know

Your character is a member of the pathfinder society: the out of game and in game group of murderho..erm.. gentlemen explorer archeologists. This is the excuse to have you all together and adventuring without cramming you all together without descending into cannibalism a bit of backstory you should think about when it comes to your character. WHY are they with these people? "They're paying me" is an acceptable answer, but not neccesarily the most fulfilling.

Go on a pre made adventure. Finish it. Get a chronicle sheet. Usually you get 1 xp. Get 3 xp, level up. Wash rinse repeat.

Confusing things: Tiers and subtiers

A level 1 fighter adventuring with a level 11 fighter would be dead before seeing the first boss. Adventures have ranges that you need to be in to play them. Typically they range from 1-5, 3-7, 7-11. Within that, the DM averages the level of the party and decides on high or low tier, so for example if you're all new and playing the 1-5 , You get a couple of kobolds. If there are enough level 4s and 5s in your group, you'll be fighting kobold fighters and a shaman.

You'll pick it up fast enough, don't worr if you're confused.

Edit: I'm done with this thread.

I feel like I'm the only who actually tries to look at more than one side of this conflict. I understand there are other people trying to look bigger parts of this, but you guys don't TALK like you are. It makes me really frustrated.

I have to sound like a zionist, because people only seem to want to heap blame on Israel, but I'm far from it and heavily disagree with the very concept.

I'm really, really opposed to the atrocities committed by Israel, but that's all you guys want to talk about. As if nothing else is going wrong over there.

Golden mean fallacy. Just because two people are fighting does not mean that they are both equally responsible.

Of course they don't. That gives them a right to refuse the right of return, deny people the ability to vote, and continue their oppression if thats what it takes to maintain a jewish state.

You're assuming that everything is worded the same when it patently is not in this game, mostly because it would be boring to read.

Your argument that there is a difference between the two and that the difference is raw is based on the notion that there is only one way to phrase something, and that is patently not the case.

Despite popular belief, what split the country wasn't so much moral differences, but economic tensions between an industrial North and an almost totally agrarian South. Those differences don't exist any more. The various regions of the country are too tied together economically to make that kind of neatly drawn Civil War probable.

It was only an economic difference insofar as the souths agrarian model required slavery for individuals to amass large amounts of wealth.

The south was explicitely clear on why it was trying to succeed

. But an increasing hostility on the part of the non-slaveholding States to the institution of slavery, has led to a disregard of their obligations, and the laws of the General Government have ceased to effect the objects of the Constitution. The States of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin and Iowa, have enacted laws which either nullify the Acts of Congress or render useless any attempt to execute them. In many of these States the fugitive is discharged from service or labor claimed, and in none of them has the State Government complied with the stipulation made in the Constitution. The State of New Jersey, at an early day, passed a law in conformity with her constitutional obligation; but the current of anti-slavery feeling has led her more recently to enact laws which render inoperative the remedies provided by her own law and by the laws of Congress. In the State of New York even the right of transit for a slave has been denied by her tribunals; and the States of Ohio and Iowa have refused to surrender to justice fugitives charged with murder, and with inciting servile insurrection in the State of Virginia. Thus the constituted compact has been deliberately broken and disregarded by the non-slaveholding States, and the consequence follows that South Carolina is released from her obligation. Linky

Its not a coincidence that they split right after the election of Lincoln

A geographical line has been drawn across the Union, and all the States north of that line have united in the election of a man to the high office of President of the United States, whose opinions and purposes are hostile to slavery. He is to be entrusted with the administration of the common Government, because he has declared that that "Government cannot endure permanently half slave, half free," and that the public mind must rest in the belief that slavery is in the course of ultimate extinction.

It really. Really was about slavery. Arguments to the contrary are apoligia for the south so they didn't/don't have to admit they were unabashedly the bad guys here.

That being said, I'm willing to go with the one check per use interpretation, despite not agreeing with it, if it engenders less hostility.

If you were going with a different argument I might buy that you had a legitimate interpretation difference, but that particular argument is nitpicking the rules to a level that would make writing anything impossible.

No. A thousand times no.

Most healing spells are a waste of resources that could otherwise go into far more productive things, either preventing damage or proactive healing via making something dead. They are inefficient. Healing simply has not scaled with the damage things can do either in between editions or with the power creep of splat books.

Healing spells do. not. keep. up . with. damage. you HAVE to use wands in between combats and save the heals for in combat emergencies.
